Interesting comments you have here on the relationship between enjoying music and cognitive abilities.

I, once, during my first year as a undergraduate student of psychology, proposed a small research to be applied on my colleagues.

Three groups were made and they all had to listen either to Mozart, Marylin Manson or silence, while doing an "IQ test". Amazingly, the group with better results was the MM one, right after came Mozart and only than we had the silence group.

My conclusion, now that I read this post (and actually we thought of that while writing the report) was that most of my classmates prefered, back then, hard/heavy rock, and many few of us liked classical or did, at all, study in silence.

Thanx for reviving that memory in me :)
